New York in New York County, New York — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Stuyvesant – Fish House
This early Federal style residence was built for Elizabeth Stuyvesant when she married Major Nicholas Fish, a hero of the Revolutionary War. It was a gift from her father, Petrus Stuyvesant, great-grandson of Peter Stuyvesant, and was one of five houses owned by the family on this once private lane. Hamilton Fish, who was born here in 1808, became successively New York’s Governor and Senator and served as Grant’s Secretary of State. Lafayette was entertained here during his triumphal visit of 1824.
